1998 Paulino Bernabe "Imperial" SP/CSAR
|Back & Sides||CSA Rosewood|
|Scale Length||650 mm|
|Nut width||52 mm|
This is one of the top models from the Paulino Bernabe workshop. It features the decorative elements, aged woods and maple lining (to the sides) of this very well-known and sought-after model. Only his best and most aged woods were reserved for these instruments and this particular instrument features striking materials. The doubling of the sides (in this case with maple) adds additional volume and projection and adds a depth of color to the sound emanating from the box. The guitar plays and sounds fantastic, and although a used guitar, it has only some very minor playing wear on the top and is in otherwise excellent condition.
